The ST Math Theory of Change

In each episode of the Inside Our MIND podcast, we take a look at issues and challenges facing education that we are working to address through research, technology, and strategic initiatives.

In our latest episode, Brian welcomes MIND’s Chief Data Science Officer Andrew Coulson back to the show for a discussion around our ST Math Theory of Change. Andrew explains how the time and energy students invest in ST Math leads to mastery-based progression, math content coverage, and math proficiency gains.
